About the Performance Monitor Library

The Performance Monitor Library is a central storehouse of all global Performance Monitors that have been configured for your network. Performance monitors gather information about specific WMI and SNMP values from the network devices.

Note: Default monitors in the library cannot be edited or removed: CPU Utilization, Disk Utilization, Interface Utilization, and Ping Latency and Availability.

You can use the Performance Monitor Library to configure and manage performance monitors. When custom Performance Monitors are changed, the changes affect each instance of that particular monitor across your device groups.
